Forum: GratefulDead Subject: non-dead classical guitar rec.

A couple of weeks ago I was listening to the National Public Radio program, All Things Considered, and they did a review of Brazilian classical guitar virtuoso's Sergio & Odair Assad. Maybe--just maybe--I was "high" at the time, but this BLEW ME AWAY! I haven't been that drawn to something new (to me anyway) in a long, long time. Try & listen to Tahhiyya Li Ossoulina & tell me that doesn't blow your mind!?!?! The break @ about 3min reminds me of Spanish Jam. I hope at least someone is as turned on by this as me---the album Jardim Abandonado (abandoned garden) is spectacular as a whole, w/a special shout-out to Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue.

tree-ap: Thank you for posting that link --- naturally, a 10-minute mid-afternoon diversion turned into a timeless odyssey into the music dimension. ...after listening to your recommendations, I jumped over to David Grisman's site to listen to many full-length cuts from his company's productions (I focused on the Brazilian masters he has worked with).
If you're interested, the main page is:
http://www.acousticdisc.com/acd_html/1.html === on the left column select "Dawg Tracks" ...you'll get to the page with 60 cd's (2 full-length options from each one can be streamed).... needless to say, you will find some nice Jerry selections there as well.

Thank you,
AshesRising
